The Spring Lake Community House and Theatre mourns the loss of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and the countless other lives destroyed as a result of racial injustices that have prevailed in our country for far too long.
Racism is an infection. It kills, it ruins, and it can often blind us to our own unconscious biases. It is easy to feel insulated when living in a safe and supportive community such as the one we find ourselves in.
But we must not bury our heads in the sand when there are real and immediate dangers threatening the lives of our fellow human beings across the nation.
As a community organization, we know it is our responsibility to celebrate and nurture the best in people.
